I recently leased a 2018 Hyundai Sonata and I’m finding the driver’s seat very uncomfortable mostly because the headrest is not allowing me to sit up straight. I have taken to using a pillow to push my body forward so that the back of my head doesn’t even touch the headrest. In prior vehicles, I would take the headrest out, turn it around, and reinsert it. This would solve my problem and allow for a comfortable ride. With my new Hyundai, I am UNABLE to remove the headrest!
It’s awfully frustrating that the IIHS and/or car makers are so focused on keeping drivers safe that they don’t consider how their modifications are affecting them. If I don’t drive with a pillow behind me, I find that I have to look up at an odd angle so that with my progressive lenses, I can see the dash in addition to the road ahead of me. I was always told that if my car was ever submerged, the headrest could be used to break the window. So much for that safety feature!
I would love to find a solution to my problem. If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
